More information about Final Jeopardy:
Generally considered to be one of the greatest films of all time, Casablanca had its release date moved up to take advantage of the publicity arising from the Allied invasion of North Africa (Operation Torch). Interestingly, because it was not put into wide release until January 1943, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences elected not to make the film eligible for Oscars until the 1944 awards.
